Could use some advice?

    Hello Everyone,

    I am new here and starting to learn Hub pages, so I saw this forum and decided to ask for some advice on a sticky situation.  I can't really give out names since I do have to respect everyone's privacy .  So to start off I have an Uncle who is in the music industry so I am on Personal Assistant on the side to his girlfriend.  So I have had the opportunity to work with and meet some very big names in the entertainment field. 

    One of my really close friends started talking to one of our local Meteorologists on Face book and got along with him really well, and he was able to be a great friend to him and offer him some really good advice.  The Meteorologist basically had some other dreams besides the weather and my friend told him that I knew another really big name in the entertainment industry and that he should talk to me.  So we had a local event which I had gone to and got a chance to speak to the Meteorologist and instantly he was very nice, easy to speak with.  So after sometime I had his permission to talk to my entertainment friend which I did and I had the opportunity to have lunch and find out more of the Meterologist's ideas.  So I had gotten to go to Los Angeles for my b-day which this is where things fell apart.  While my entertainment friend's girlfriend was showing me the sites of LA, my entertainment friend decided to use my laptop and email the Meteorologist and find out all his dreams and got kind of nosy with him.  So basically the day I was getting ready to fly back home the Meteorologist emailed me saying he knew I was emailing him and just totally flipped out saying he would have the news station find out info and stuff and it threw me a total curve ball.  Thing is my entertainment friend felt it was no big deal for him to be emailing on my laptop, but he has not made one attempt to set the record straight with the Meteorologist and he is angry with me and thinks I played games with him? 

    Now when I came back home I talked to my friend who was the one to start talking to the Meteorologist and he had messaged him trying to set the record straight which obviously did not happen and for awhile they stopped talking, now they have been back to talking on Face book but the Meteorologist is still angry with me.  Normally I am the kind of person to just move on, but to get accused of doing something I haven't to me is unfair and this is a person I highly respect.  Anyone have any advice as to how to handle this issue.  Part of me wants to just face this head on and have my say but then again these people are in the media on a daily basis?  Any advice would be much appreciated.  I feel stupid for posting this, because it almost feels like a high school issue.

    Thank you
    Linda smile

    I don't know how much help I could be, but I sure understand how you feel.  Being accused of something I didn't do pi**es me off more than anything.  I just get instantly mad.

    I would apologize to the meteorologist...but not for what you said or emailed to him, but for breaching confidentiality so to speak by letting your nosy friend have access to your laptop.  That is really your only "sin" in this whole matter.

    I would also ask him for an apology.  Just say, "I've apologized, now its your turn to say you are sorry for thinking bad things about me."  You are giving him an opportunity to redeem himself a little (he's probably acting weird because he is embarrassed by his own behavior).  If he apologizes, you can start building your friendship again, if not, tell him maybe you can meet up again and be friends when he has matured a little.

    Hope this helps...?

      That helps me out a lot more than you realize.  Thank you so much! smile  I feel like such a dork for even trusting my LA friend with the Laptop, but I trusted in him, he should have known better being in the entertainment industry.

    I apologize to say this, but "How old are you?". What school did you pass through that allowed you to use "so" at the beginning of a sentence? Not to be condemning, to say the least, but you need to move on, or elsewhere with this story. Your photo does not match the question you are presenting to something my 8 year old daughter would question years ago.......

    If someone is angry at you for something you didn't do then just forget about him. He's not worth your time. Probably not what you wanted to hear, but it's easier to just forget about him, not worth it.

    Come to think of it, all the meterologists and anchormen I've ever met have been extremely shallow men. I've met a lot of them to base that off of.
